Speaking to commentsafrica after the programme, leader of UDSSDG Club Mr. Jirjiri Joshua explained that “It’s much easier, less costly and more impactful to educate and train the young ones at the lower level on personal hygiene. Practicing or living a hygienic life is core to contributing to development. It breeds disease free population, more hygienic enough to contribute meaningfully to total development.” He further explained that the programme was in line with helping various communities in Ghana to meet the SDG’s as envisioned by the United Nations.
